Build your stash holiday card makers Christmas blog hop


Below is my entry to the blog hop -  I used a Stampin up Christmas tree punch and BO Bunny's back to basics Christmas Carousel paper to make the trees and the words were from a die from Kaisercraft.
Simple but effective I think.

I do enjoy making my Christmas cards

January 2020 Scrap The Girls Mood board

Be Inspired by Weave, Patterns or Colors

I was inspired by Weave, patterns, textile and colors. I wanted to make a tribute to my Mum (on the right) and my Auntie (Mum's sister) who are both shining brightly up there in the sky now! They were always positive and optimistic and unique!
Miss you so much Mum and Marian.

I used my Cocoa Vanilla Studios  Bohemian Paper Collection ( though the butterflies might be from another CVS collection??) and Cottage Garden Embroidery Threads - Gerbera.
Lots of opportunities  in in this mood board!

Be inspired by what you see, read or the colours.

The gum leaf and the stone make me think of the Australian bush.

I used Kaisercraft "Old Mac" paper  collection and also the collectables that came with it.

The wood veneer is from Corbett Creations.

I was inspired by the circular theme of the book hangover, and the alcohol.

There is nothing like a cold beer after a hot day sightseeing!

Breast Cancer Awareness month- pick your star Sign and be inspired by that bra

I am a Pisces and I took my inspiration from the shoe string straps!

I cut up a sheet of black bazzill into narrow strips and went  with a black and white theme.

My daughter was so happy to be a penguin in the school assembly presentation!

Flowers were from 49 and Market, the backing papers and stars were from My Mind's Eye

and the black and white lace panels on the side were die cuts using a Stamp'in up die.

The title is from Dusty Attic and I embossed it with Altenew Crisp Embossing powder- Polar White.
